Andrew began writing because there is nothing else to do in Utah. Later, he realized that it was much easier to have adventures, confess to wrongdoing and insult people in stories than it was in real life, and there was less risk. In junior high school he wowed classmates with stories about Mormon separatists and turn-of-the-century Ku Klux Klan murders. In high school he found out you can make money writing and proceeded to do so. In college he came to despise all Creative Writing majors. When he was 18 he began writing comic books, some of which saw print. That spring he met Seth Fisher and Happydale was born. Andrew continues to write piles of stories, the vast majority of which will never see the light of day. Currently, he is finishing degrees in both History and Anthropology at the University of Utah and preparing for graduate school. He considers himself a functioning sociopath.
